    I have a new Bolt Vox 500 gb coming that I would like to upgrade to 3 or 4 tb. I did this with my previous bolt. I can not find any reasonably priced and compatible hard drives. Where are they? Please help?

    Ok, I read most of the threads above and I don't have my question answered. Where can I find a reasonably priced plug and play 3 or 4 tb hard drive?

    If your opening up the box, you may as well just connect a 3.5" HDD externally. It's a lot cheaper.

    Thanks for the tip, UCLAbb, what hard drive is compatible to the Bolt Vox and any online stores where I can find them?

    Amazon, Newegg, eBay. I used a WD Red 3tb. You should do a little more research on types of drives. When I got mine there were no issues but I read now about types that may be a problem. Search the thread or ask in a new thread. You will need power for the drive as well as a SATA cable to connect to the board. I just used a bare drive with a power supply and 4 pin molex to sata adapter.

    Thanks again UCLABB. I will start another thread with an inquiry for drives that may work.
